Joining the social media challenge where people show that they’re stupid without actually saying that they’re stupid, he shared his own tale of ineptitude.
The video starts with a voice that says: "Tell me that you’re stupid without actually telling me you’re stupid."
Shortly after, the TikToker mentions how he asked a friend who only had one hand why he wore his watch on a particular wrist.
"I used to have a friend who didn’t have a hand on his left arm, but he always had a watch on that wrist,” he said.

"And one day I asked him, I’m, like, ‘Bro, I wanted to ask you this question a long time ago, but, f*** it, why do you have a watch on that wrist where you don’t have a hand? Aren’t you afraid it’s gonna fall off?” he continued.
" ‘That’s kind of a f***ed up question, but the reason I have a watch on that wrist is because if I put it on the other wrist, how the f*** am I gonna put it on?” said the friend in question.
"So I was, like, ‘Yeah, it’s a f***ed up question, I’m kind of stupid for asking that.’"
( Covers face with hands in second-hand embarrassment).
Although he felt quite silly for not realizing initially why his friend put his watch on that wrist in the first place, he wasn’t alone.
The video was reshared on Twitter and has been viewed over 2.4 million times, with many people admitting that it took them to the end of the video to truly understand that this was a stupid question.
“Why I only realized till the very end why it was stupid, wrote one Twitter commenter.
In response to that tweet, someone followed up with : “right?!! i fr said "how he gotta watch on a wrist with no hand to support it?? how it don't slide off???" before he even said his question was literally that. like... PLS.”
Another person wrote the following: “Looks like I’m stupid too cos I definitely didn’t think of that till he said it.

At least the internet understands now.
